Oh my goodness, EVERYONE seems sick! I can't imagine what you're feeling.....here's hoping that all of your babies stay put until you're on the mend!
I'm also on the list of "mw appointment today". As far as I know, this will be my last appointment before they have to drop me (unless they schedule on for next Monday, but I really doubt it---that's the last day they can attend my birth, so except for talking about hospital options (which I imagine we'll do today), there's not much they can do for me at that point.
Hopefully things will happen on their own before then. DH is working from home this morning so that I can go to my appointment by myself. I haven't had any internals yet, and just in case I DO have one, I don't want DS to be there---he's gotten so used to the way appointments go, that something that different might freak him out. I also want to be able to have our conversation without interruption today, since I suspect it will be a more serious one than we've had so far.
One of my two midwives said, THREE WEEKS AGO, that she felt like I'd go on her watch. Well, I've always felt that way too, but then she went out of town and I figured we were both wrong. This baby has hung on so long that she's now back on call, so maybe we WERE right, just a few weeks off!
I had timeable contractions before bed AGAIN last night, and they actually got painful when I laid down for the night. Then they stopped.
DS was up a bunch, and then up for the day at 5:30AM. DH was sweet enough to get up with him, though, so that I could lay there for another hour. I had been awake since 2:30AM, and just didn't want to face the world yet.
I'm still in pretty good spirits, though. I guess I just had to get all of the blahs out this past Saturday. The snow (ice?) is still on the ground today, so the roads are pretty bad right around here, but I think they're much better in the rest of the region. A few more hours (of melting), and it would be a GREAT time to have a baby!! Come on, baby!
Oh yeah----all of you who are sick and going to the mw's today, DON'T GET YOUR MIDWIFE SICK!!!!
